In a career full of vastly dissimilar masterpieces, Small Change is one of those handful of Waits albums that markedly stands out from the rest. This is only Waits' fourth album, continuing his evolution into ravaged-voiced, drunken nighhawk beat poet that came into fruition on his previous record, Nighthawks at the Diner. But this time around, Waits merges this persona with a set of truly moving, melodically rich and diverse tunes.
On the albums immediately following this one (Foreign Affairs in particular), Waits' character was beginning to show some signs of stagnation, empty role playing. But in 1975, on this record, none of these signs of wear come through. What's left is a completely unique and compelling atmosphere, with excellent songs to compliment. 'Tom Traubert's Blues' is arguably the greatest thing here, one of Waits' most recognizable songs and one of his most moving lyrics, not to mention the phenomenal melody. Elsewhere, all the sides of early Waits have a spot, from hilarious beat-rap poet, desolate drunken piano balladeer, sinister storyteller; all of them have a place here, and arguably are at their pinnacle.
If you have an interest in early Waits, Small Change or the more accessible, gorgeous 'Closing Time' are the places to start. In the 1970's, Waits was also a major innovator within the rock and roll genre (as he more famously was in the 1980's), but efforts such as this go slightly un-noticed due to the more familiar efforts such as 'Rain Dogs'. Small Change deserves a listen from anyone who digs Tom Waits.
